Re: powell's kraken?

The fact that one of their sources is a fantasist who pretended to be military intelligence to get attention, but was actually a car mechanic in the army ... that doesn't suggest they had a problematic evidentiary basis? poor character doesn't discredit fact It completely discredits the declaration...

Re: There is No Sufficient Reason for God to Allow For Evil

if god exists, as a person, then, as I say elsewhere... if he wanted nuthin' but bio-automation -- robots -- then that's what he woulda created seems to me, since man is not a robot but instead is a free will, god wanted man to be free the bitch of it is: bein' free means bein' free to be wrong, to ...

Re: God Endowed Humans with Free Will?

People have died for freedom -- not even for a freedom they themselves could be sure to enjoy, but that the freedoms and choices of others would not be taken away. And these p...

Re: God Endowed Humans with Free Will?

...equivocating humans with 'robots'. You're not familiar with the metaphorical use of the word "robot" to designate an entity that is mobile/function-performing but devoid of volition? :shock: Well, now you know it.

Re: powell's kraken?

Well, yes. People who publish defamatory lies are often not the sort of people who publish a retraction just to correct the record like some sort of honest man would.

Re: American election.

If god knew before hand what his life was like, would he want it, would he be ok with being tortured and humiliated? He did. “I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep...I lay down My life so that I may take it back. No one has taken it away from Me, but I lay it do...
